Former Chicago Bulls guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha, now with the Oklahoma City Thunder, has listed his three-bedroom town home in Northbrook for $499,000.
The Switzerland-born Sefolosha, 28, played for the Bulls from 2006 until he was traded in 2009. Like former Bulls teammates Andres Nocioni and Luol Deng, Sefolosha lived in the gated Royal Ridge development in Northbrook. He paid $630,000 in late 2006 for his 2,511-square-foot unit.
For a short time in 2010, Sefolosha listed it for $599,000. Recently, he listed the unit for $519,000, then cut its asking price.
Catamaran CEO buys condo
Mark Thierer, CEO of Lisle-based Catamaran Corp., paid $3.56 million for a seven-room, 4,008-square-foot Gold Coast condominium.
Thierer, 52, bought the 47th-floor condo several months ago. He also has a home in Barrington.
Through a Catamaran spokesman, Thierer declined to comment on the purchase. Robyn Brooks of Prudential Rubloff, who represented Thierer, also declined to comment.
Last month, Elite Street broke the news that former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun sold her five-bedroom town home in the Hyde Park neighborhood, which was facing foreclosure, for $1.21 million.
The real estate multiple listing service posted the sale at that amount, but public records show a selling price of $955,000.
Both amounts are correct, said Moseley-Braun's listing agent, Diane Silverman of Urban Search. While $955,000 technically was the value of the house in the transaction, the buyer also had to pay off a lien on the house to get the deal done, Silverman said. That meant that the buyer's out-of-pocket costs were $1.21 million, she said.
Moseley-Braun is renting in Hyde Park.
